About this Item

Jacket has light wear. Barnes Wallis was at the forefront of progress in aviation for virtually the whole history of the aeronautical industry through to the 1970s. This biography, based on Wallis's huge collection of private and professional papers, and on other sources hitherto untapped, tells the public and personal story. In telling the story of Wallis's exceptionally interesting life, this book illuminates the social, political and military history of the 20th-century, entering into some of the bitterest debates of the recent past and explores the character of Wallis, who was a self-styled pacifist and who also designed the Wellesley and Wellington bombers, the Tallboy and Grand Slam bombs, and conceived and built the famous dam-busting bouncing bomb and other aerial warfare.
